James William “Bill” Metcalf


Normally, I’d give all the info on these when I post the search info. But due to time constraints I’ll have to post them later. Please bear with me.

I’m just back from vacation and I have a lot of new responsibilities. So my time is more limited these days, but I’m still working on the tree.
I got an email from Finley Metcalf’s granddaughter to help with William Eady Metcalfe’s family line. William is the son of Norris and Mellia Cornelius Metcalf. He married Elizabeth “Lizzie” Mays and then Selena Emily Gabbard – Flannery Metcalfe.  Some of William’s children’s names are still questionable. Maybe she’ll know exactly whom they were.

James William Metcalf born: 8 Feb 1876 in Rockcastle, Kentucky died: 14 Feb 1937 in Laurel, Kentucky was my husband Anthony’s Great-Grandfather.
His draft record:
Name: W M Metcalf
Birth: 8 Feb 1875
Residence: Rockcastle, Kentucky
Other: Rockcastle County
His dad was Howard Boone Metcalf that married Almeda Jane Brummett.


As for Ancil: I have no idea. I only have one on my tree but his father was James M Adkins and mother was Cynthia Gatliff * Ancil Gatliff Adkins 25 Sep 1886 Williamsburg City, Whitley, Kentucky, United States.


Mitha is a very deep subject. I don’t have that kind of time. See Mithaology on this blog. Born about 1660 in Surrey, England or maybe born an Indian. Died abt 1754 Henrico, Virginia, United States. She is recorded in the will of Richard Parker (1660-1725) as wife of.

“Mithaology” not a phrase I have coined myself, but do love the terminology. It gives meaning to a person whose life may have never come to light and she is still top priority for this family genealogist “to do list.” She is one woman that truly has made a difference. Shrouded in a cloud of mystery Mitha continues to bring about much debate in the “Adkins Family History” class and descendants, causing us to probe further into the archives to find every last detail we can about her life and family. I do hope which ever way it turns out she will be given her place in history and the honor she deserves as presumably, the love of one of our forefathers, LIFE. And, for this alone she is worthy of my fullest acknowledgment and gratitude. “God rest her soul.”


Princess Nokalackey aka Nokalakdy Nuhdo(moon) Nokalakeeaka (Walkingstick) Princess Nokalackey (abt 1756) married John Casteel (1758-1817) father of John Harrison Casteel (1778-1854). This is Anthony’s 7th Generation Grandparents. He is of * Margaret “Peggy” Casteel wife of James Metcalf. So he cannot be tested as a direct DNA link for this haplogroup. Sorry.


Poteete’s I’m still working on this line as well.  Too many to list.


That’s about it for today. I’m chasing my tail as usual. I’m late… I’m late… I’m late. That will probably be posted on the back of my headstone. If my husband’s sense of humor holds, I’m sure it will be. He made me laugh so much this weekend on vacation I remembered why I married that man; that and he’s dang sexy! LOL I was just checking to see if you actually read what I write.

Have a great week everybody.
